This annual event features some of the best jazz you’ll hear anywhere – and it sells out every year. This year's concert freatures Ken Peplowski (clarinet), Atla DeChamplain (vocals), Matt DeChamplain (piano), Ron Ormsby (bass), and Bart Weisman (drums).
Ken Peplowski “is arguably the greatest living jazz clarinetist” says Russell Davies, BBC2. He has recorded approximately 50 CDs as a soloist, and close to 400 as a sideman and some of the many artists he has performed/recorded with include Mel Torme, Rosemary Clooney, Peggy Lee, Woody Allen, Benny Goodman, and Madonna. He travels at least half of every year and has appeared at the Newport Jazz Festival, Hollywood Bowl, and Carnegie Hall. He will be accompanied by Matt DeChamplain on piano, Ron Ormsby on bass, and Bart Weisman on drums.
Atla DeChamplain (vocals) and Matt DeChamplain (piano) will open the concert and they have a love for jazz which brought them together and they recently completed their debut album. In addition to their active performance schedule, Matt teaches at the Hartt School of Music and Atla is the jazz voice instructor at Western Connecticut State University. Atla & Matt will be accompanied by Ron Ormsby on bass and Bart Weisman on drums.
A portion of the proceeds from the festival are donated to worthy causes including Cape Conservatory Jazz in the Schools program.
